I'm Kaylee Wood, a recipient of the 2021 MIYAA James Golick Grant for Women in Computology award. I am from Oxford House, Manitoba but live in Winnipeg. I graduated with the class of 2022 from Fort Richmond Collegiate and am now studying at the University of Winnipeg pursuing my passion for theatre and teaching. I look forward to being a co-MC for this year's event!
I am an Indigenous senior currently attending Murdoch Mackay, and was a recipient of last year’s MIYAA awards for the performing arts. I have always loved the arts and continue to incorporate the performing arts in my everyday life, whether it is in my Drama class, in Choir, or alone in my room, I am always trying to improve my skill set so that I can inspire other Indigenous youth to pursue the arts and hopefully contribute to the lack of Indigenous representation currently in the performing arts.
